@StretchASU - I bet you wish you had a Pronghorn tag for that one!

I hope not, we don't need that crap around here.
I have a camera out near this so I hope to get something on it soon.
My first thought was bear?
I hope not for your sake cause they make a damn mess. As far as bear v. pig I just didn’t see berrys and the like which is more bear specific compared to pig. They both drop a “compartmentalized” poo instead of raisonettes like a deer. Also no hair or small bones. But hell, let us know based on trail cam data.

Must not be holding my tongue right! Didn't see any deer over the weekend, but saw 30 turkeys during one sit.

I smelled Jr. before I found him, he was stinking and all rutted up. I cut his hocks off and will use them soon.

On the board & cloud 9!!! Saw 24 turkeys to start off my evening & then about 5:20 a doe & 2 yearlings came out & I was going to shoot something by God! 5 minutes later with nothing else coming out so I settled the crosshairs on the doe & squeezed. She jumped & mule kicked higher than my feeder before running off ~40 yards & crashing. 3 minutes later a 8 pointer walked out so I decided since I'd have to get my knives out I'd better make it worth it! He jumped & then wobbled ~20 yards before falling & I was in my stand shaking like a leaf. Should put around 90lbs of venison in the freezer!

Pro Tip: If you're on-call and you're thinking of running generators for Duke Progress' monthly peak, take a bolt-action so you can use the handle to prop up your phone while monitoring the load!

If I were bow hunting and that happened, I'd sacrifice an arrow

Who here hunts squirrels with a 17 hmr? Got a itch for one and thought it could work well.

@JSJJ388 a 17hmr will......explode certain animals. I've shot a few crows with it and its pretty devastating. Head shots are the way to go for squirrels. I have a Savage with the bull barrel and thumbhole stock. It's a tack driver and is a lot of fun to shoot.

Boys it’s time to pull the boat out and knock the dust off the rods. Buddy checked out a lake a few hours from me and hammered some big browns. Two dozen over 20”.

I also ordered myself a kicker motor controller cause you don’t get tits like mine taking two steps to adjust the kicker every couple of minutes.
